Max tried his best to paint a nice picture, but it sounds like a disaster - horrible battery life, doesn't play friendly with Panny lenses (meaning you lose IBIS and the focus ring is wonky), no internal IBIS, no weather sealing....

...all for a picture that looks not a whole lot different then the GH5.  Which has everything this camera is missing.  Indeed, I think the skin tones look better on the Panny:

Perhaps if you had nothing - like no editing system (it comes with resolve), no lens, nothing, and had almost no money, maybe then....

But no.  GH5 still crushes it.

Kai - essentially a paid sponsor - struggles with actual use of the camera (no flip screen, covers that won't go back into place, a ridiculous form factor).

And by God, don't be out in the rain - the heat vents are massive.  And completely exposed to the elements.

He's tries to pump the idea that it has AC power.... but of course, if the battery lasted more then a half hour it wouldn't need to.  And the video again shows that the image is on par with the GH5...  which can also shoot stills.  Unlike this camera.

While people are praising the price - $1300 - but you'd have to have two pockets full of batteries to shoot for 8 hours.  Literally. 

You'd also have to have dollies and stedi-cam and the like, because zero in body stabilization.  Which again means it ain't perfect for the student with no money.
